### Question 30(i). If 0 ≤ x≤ π and x lies in the 2nd quadrant such that sinx = 1/4, Find the values of cos(x/2), sin(x/2), and tan(x/2).

Solution:

Given that,

sinx = 1/4

As we know that, sinx = √(1 – cos2x)

So,

⇒ (1/4)2 = (1 – cos2x)

⇒ (1/16) – 1 = – cos2x

cosx = ± √15/4

It is given that x is in 2nd quadrant, so cosx is negative.

cosx = – √15/4

Now,

As we know that, cosx = 2 cos2(x/2) – 1

So,

⇒ – √15/4 = 2cos2(x/2) – 1

⇒ cos2(x/2) = – √15/8 + 1/2

cos(x/2) = ± (4-√15)/8

It is given that, x is in 2nd quadrant, so cos(x/2) is positive.

cos(x/2) = (4 – √15)/8

Again,

cosx = cos2(x/2) – sin2(x/2)

⇒ – √15/4 = {(4 – √15)/8}2 – sin2(x/2)

⇒ sin2(x/2) = (4 + √15)/8

⇒ sin(x/2) = ± √{(4 + √15)/8} = √{(4 + √15)/8}

Now,

tan(x/2) = sin(x/2) / cos(x/2)     = 4 + √15

Hence, the value of cos(x/2) = (4 – √15)/8, sin(x/2) = √{(4 + √15)/8}, and tan(x/2) = 4 + √15 .

### Question 30(ii). If cosx = 4/5 and x is acute, find tan2x.

Solution:

Given that,

cosx = 4/5

As we know that, sinx = √(1 – cos2x)

So,

= √(1 – (4/5)2)

= √(1 – 16/25)

= √{(25 – 16)/25}

= √(9/25)

= 3/5

Since, tanx = sinx/cosx, so

= (3/5) / (4/5)

= 3/4

As we know that,

tan2x = 2tanx / (1 – tan2x)

= 2(3/4) / {1 – (3/4)2}

= 2(3/4) / (1 – 9/16)

= (3/2) / (7/16)

Hence, the value of tan2x is 24/7

### Question 30(iii). If sinx = 4/5 and 0 < x < π/2, then find the value of sin4x.

Solution:

Given that,

sinx = 4/5

As we know that, sinx = √(1 – cos2x)

So,

⇒ (4/5)2 = 1 – cos2x

⇒ 16/25 – 1 = -cos2x

⇒ 9/25 = cos2x

⇒ cosx = ±3/5

It is given that, x is ln the 1st quadrant

So, cosx = 3/5

Now,

sin4x = 2 sin2x cos2x

= 2 (2 sinx cosx)(1 – 2sin2x)

= 2(2 × 4/5 × 3/5)(1 – 2(4/5)2)

= 2(24/25)(1-32/25)

= 2(24/25)((25-32)/25)

= 2(24/25)(-7/25)

= -336/625

Hence, the value of sin4x is (- 336/625)

### Question 31. If tanx = b/a, then find the value of Solution:

We have to find the value of So, It is given that tanx = b/a, so      Hence, the value of is ### Question 32. If tanA = 1/7 and tanB = 1/3, show that cos2A = sin4B

Solution:

Given that, tanA = 1/7 and tanB = 1/3

Show: cos2A = sin4B

As we know that, tan2B = 2tanB / (1 – tan2B)

= (2 × 1/3)(1 – 1/9) = 3/4

So, cos2A = (1 – tan2A)/(1 + tan2A)

= {1-(1/7)2}/{1+(1/7)2}

= 48/50

= 24/25

And sin4B = 2tan2B / (1 + tan22B)

= {2 × 3/4}{1 + (3/4)2}

= 24/25

Hence, cos2A = sin4B

### Question 33. cos7° cos14° cos28° cos56° = sin68°/16cos83°

Solution:

Lets solve LHS

= cos7° cos14° cos28° cos56°

On dividing and multiplying by 2sin7°, we get × 2sin7° × cos7° × cos14° × cos28° × cos56° × cos28° × cos56° × cos56°   LHS = RHS

LHS = RHS

LHS = RHS

Now on squaring eq(i) and (ii) and then adding them, we get

sin2α + sin2β + 2sinαsinβ + cos2α + cos2β + 2cosαcosβ = a2 + b2

⇒ 1 + 1 + 2(sinαsinβ + cosαcosβ) = a2 + b2

⇒ 2(sinαsinβ + cosαcosβ) = a2 + b2 – 2

Solution:

Given that,

sinα = 4/5 and cosβ = 5/13

As we know that.

cosα = √(1 – sin2α)

So,

= √{1 – (4/5)2}

= 3/5

Also, sinβ = √(1 – cos2β)

= √{1 – (5/13)2}

= 12/13

Now,

cos(α – β) = cosα cosβ + sinα sinβ

= (3/5)(5/13)(4/5)(12/13)

Thus,

cos{(α – β)/2} =  = 8/√65

Hence Proved.

### Question 44. If acos2θ + bsin2θ = c has α and β as its roots prove that,

(i) tanα + tanβ = 2b/(a + c)

(ii) tanα tanβ = (c – a)/(c + a)

(iii) tan(α + β) = b/a

Solution:

As we know that  Now substitute these values in the given equation, we get

a(1 – tan2θ) + b(2tanθ) = c(1 + tan2θ)

(c + a)tan2θ + 2btanθ + c – a = 0

(i) As α and β are roots

So, sum of the roots:

tanα + tanβ = 2b / (c + a)

(ii) As α and β are roots

So, product of roots:

tanα tanβ = (c – a) / (c + a)

(iii) tan(α + β)=  = b/a

Hence proved.

### Question 45. If cosα + cosβ = 0 = sinα + sinβ, then prove that cos2α + cos2β = -2cos(α + β).

Solution:

Given that,

cosα + cosβ = 0 = sinα + sinβ

Prove: cos2α + cos2β = -2cos(α + β)

Proof:

cosα + cosβ = 0

On squaring on both sides, we get

cos2α + cos2β + 2 cosα cosβ = 0     ….(i)

Similarly

sinα + sinβ = 0

On squaring on both sides, we get

sin2α + sin2β + 2 sinα sinβ = 0       …..(ii)

Now, subtract eq (ii) from (i), we get

⇒ (cos2α + cos2β + 2 cosα cosβ) – (sin2α + sin2β + 2 sinα sinβ) = 0

⇒ cos2α – sin2α + cos2β – sin2β + 2(cosα cosβ – sinα sinβ) = 0

⇒ cos2α + cos2β + 2cos(α + β) = 0

⇒ cos2α + cos2β = -2cos(α + β)

Hence proved.
